Hockey Dad For A Night

It was not a good night for the Flyers last night, who couldn't seem to find the net and got thrashed by the Atlanta Thrashers (whoever that is) 1-0. It was a better night for my son's amateur hockey team Legacy, who played a scrimmage after the Flyers/Thrashers game at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, home of the Flyers and the 76ers.

These guys have come a long way from ten years or so ago when they used to play street hockey as teenagers on an abandoned tennis court, with hay bales as boundaries. Now they're playing on the Flyers' ice, outscoring them 7-0. Final score: Red team 5, White team 2.

These guys played three 17 minute periods with a one minute break between periods. Pretty good if you ask me. But I'm biased.

Here's my boy, #27, Dan Pickens in the video:
